Dealing with Disc Pain in Brookhaven, MS

Are You a Candidate For Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression?

If you have lower back pain that keeps returning, or your low back pain extends further down your leg and into your foot, perhaps it’s an indicator that you have a slipped disc.
Also known as a herniated disc, the pain triggered by this condition can be extreme and sometimes debilitating.

Pain Brought On By a Herniated Disc.

Having a slipped disc can be very unpleasant. But in some cases, symptoms will subside in 6 weeks or less. This holds true in about 90% of herniated disc occurrences.

If your disc pain lasts longer than 6 weeks, or keeps coming back over a period of several months or years, this can be an indicator that it may not go away by itself. Other treatment options, including gentle, non-surgical spinal decompression treatment, should then be thought about.

What Brings About Discs to Slip?

Your spine is made up of a chain of bones called the vertebrae. The front part of each individual vertebrae is called the vertebral body. Between each vertebrae are soft spinal discs that have a hard, multilayered casing and a gel-like center, named the nucleus pulposus.

These discs are what enable the spine to be flexible and let us lean forward or turn our upper body from side to side. Our discs also absorb impacts that are transferred to the spine while jumping or running, for example,.

It means that one of the spinal discs is bulging beyond the edges of the vertebral bodies that are above and below it when you have a slipped disc. There are three types of slipped discs:.

  • Prolapsed Disc: This means the disc is bulging out between the vertebrae, but the disc’s outermost layer is still intact.
  • Extruding Disc: This means there is a tear in the outer layer of the spinal disc, which is causing the spinal disc tissue to leak out. The tissue that has come out remains connected to the disc.
  • Sequestration: This is one of the most serious type of slipped disk. In this particular instance, the spinal disc tissue has entered into the spinal canal and is no longer directly connected to the disc.

While all three types of herniated discs may be extremely painful, most people suffering from a slipped disc can receive relief through gentle, non-surgical spinal decompression therapy.

You should absolutely consider seeking treatment from one of our medical professionals if you are experiencing recurrent disc pain and you believe you may have a slipped disc.

By gently manipulating the spine so that it resumes its normal state, our team of spinal disc practitioners can help relieve the pressure caused by your slipped disc and provide instant relief to your back pain.

Contact us today for your free consultation if you or somebody you know is suffering from disc pain as the result of a slipped disc. Our expert spinal disc doctors can tell you if gentle, non-surgical spinal decompression treatment is a good option for treating your pain.

Dr. Guist has shown a warm relationship with me and I am sure with other patients also.He listens to my problems and works on resolving or decreasing the pain. His staff is very friendly and there has been less than five minutes of waiting time. I would recommend him and his staff to anyone who needs to see a chiropractor.

I went to see Dr Giust for lower back pain and joint stiffness. After a few visits he had me feeling like my old self again. My alignment was all out of order. He got me aligned properly!! He took the time to explain everything and how it was going to be corrected. At first I was hesitant to go to a Chiropractor, now I wish I had gone to see Dr. Giust sooner. He and his staff are friendly and courteous! If you have problems with any kind of pain I would highly recommend that you go to see him!

Dr. Giust and his crew are the best around! I have been intermittently stopping in for adjustments for more than 7 years. So appreciative of a skilled practitioner who understands my neck issues and can coax my spine into behaving! Visiting this office feels like a visit to see friends. I am so thankful for Dr. Giust and this convenient, easy to schedule, reasonably priced, accommodating, skilled and professional practice that he and the team provide. My neck tells me I am due for another visit!!PS: I have gone to 6 different chiropractors in my lifetime. Dr. Giust is one of my favorites. He applies the right amount of pressure to get the job done, and no more. There have been a couple other chiropractors so rough that I almost felt assaulted by the adjustment. Not so here... Dr. Giust is gentle, skilled, and careful.
